running a super pac is expensive. i mean, we had legitimate costs. we had handling costs, and we had legal fees, and the biggest expense, almost $90,000 of it was for the commercials the super pac ran while i was kind of sort of running for president of south carolina. i wasn't even in charge of the super pac then. >> in his home state of south carolina, of course, colbert was at one point polling ahead of a legitimate candidate, jon huntsman. next, people in the other -- over 30 states have submitted petitions to the white house asking that their states be allowed to secede from the union on the heels of president obama's re-election. one petition from texas has 70,000 signatures. last week, by the way, texas gop official peter morrison wrote a column asking for a, quote, amicable divorce from what he called the maggots, his words, those who re-elected president obama. we'll hear -- well, how about the texas governor, rick perry, by the way, who said this on the issue of secession back in 2009.
